In a piece written for Politico, Cruz commended Obama for signing a bill that will give the president authority to block visas to United Nations ambassadors who have engaged in "terrorist activity" against the United States or its allies.

Cruz also thanked his other colleagues.

"Credit is due not only to the president but also to Rep. Doug Lamborn (R-Col.), who introduced this bill in the House, and my Senate colleagues on both sides of the aisle, from Chuck Schumer to Lindsey Graham, for standing together and swiftly passing this legislation and sending it to the White House," he wrote.

The legislation represents the first bill introduced by Cruz to be signed into law by Obama.
